In Honduras, a delegation of faith leaders from the United States is denouncing the United States’ support for Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, who has been inaugurated for a second term despite allegations of widespread voting fraud in the November 26 election. This is Rev. Kathleen McTigue of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, speaking outside the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa on Monday.

Rev. Kathleen McTigue: “We call on our United States government to withdraw its recognition of the fraudulently elected government in Honduras. And we demand the investigation and prosecution of both those directly responsible for and those behind the killings during the protests from November 27 ’til today.”
